    Well, when you spent 6 year at school learning this language, you just need to know at least basics
    I actually applied for one school in England, but unfortunately, they didn't want me But I'm pretty happy where I am.

    About German and Polish - do you know German alphabet ? It's almost the same as Polish one (at least the latin words are pronounced the same).

    I will teach you some basic -
    Nazywam się Digital_Eon - My name is Digital neon
    Pronounce : "Niasywam sy Digital_Eon" - easy isn't it

    @Jakko : More or less (ekhem..Digi, did Jakko just said something bad about me ??)

    German alphabet? No. ^___^;; But thanks for that lesson~ I'm just bad at learning these languages online; a friend tried to teach me Finnish and all I remember is something about a toaster...

    Edit: No, I think he said something about understanding long words. Forgot what it was he said, though.

    Yeah, but I think Jakko knows what my problem is (especially when I'm studying science).

    So how did you learnt your Japanese ?

    Um... online. But it's super-easy to pronounce. (Oh, and through books, and talking to Japanese people - I learned Engrish that way too!) Although I don't know it that well, not even conversationally.

    (Problem? o_O)

    Big words that mean the same thing as can be said with less complicated words, but used in this case merely to sound smart, rather than to help the reader? I know, pisses me off too.

    Exactly, but they always do expect from you such crap even if they know you actually understand the topic. That's why I think I didn't get there
    It's different communicating with students from england and with professors and doctors from england - what are they expecting me to say ??
    "Methinks I can see with eyes of soul of mine" - surely I didn't even quote it well...

    @Hime : Easy to pronounce ? Where ? I actually know how to use some sentences for speaking and some basic grammar, but that's what I could learn by myself - this language isn't easy and it can't be learnt just by watching few anime episodes I was curious how did you managed to get so well with it so you can read your Reverse stuff (...maybe your a genious in disguise ??)

    I can't read it - I got a translation! I just said that I can confirm whether it's basically true. ^_^;; And anyway, there's only one way to pronounce everything in Japanese... so I can read it if there's hiragana. But I told you, I can't understand super-well!~

    *is actually fairly intelligent, academically... just not the rest of the time*

    Well, you did say you recognize the "marriage" word (kekko..nah, whatever - I can't speak Japenrich ).

    I was thinking about learning Japanese by getting into some course, but I'm pretty old already and I don't have time for that... You should try to do so, maybe you will learn it well and you will be able to make your own translation group
